Working group: Trends and dynamics of trade and global value chains – from the lenses of the UK and China | Coriolis Future of Strategy 2020

The pandemic had a devastating impact on global trade and exposed vulnerabilities of global supply chains. There remains uncertainty on the new ‘normal’ post-COVID trade patterns and the role that political developments will play. This webinar, led by NIESR and supported by Innovate UK will illustrate UK’s competitiveness and position in global production networks, the role of major economies in the medical supply chains, as well as discussions on China’s internationalisation and relationship with the UK.
